Ping have not been renowned for their drivers, unless you talk to die-hard Ping users, but we think the Ping G2 driver will change that.
We tried the 8.5 degree version with a stiff NV shaft and it looks great, sounds great and goes great. The more 'traditional' head and hosel shape than the TiSi give it a great presence at address and with that 460cc head, a lot of confidence too.
The cosmetics of the head will probably divide opinion, but overall they look very good, despite many interpretations of the line-up graphic on the top of the head.
The green NV shaft (green with envy - get it?) is quite long at 45 inches, but performs excellently if you like a stiffer shaft and the grip was very good and can be custom fitted to suit your size of hand by a Ping retailer.
Hitting the club was a joyous experience with good trajectory and excellent distance. The sound at impact got everyone's attention without being tinny or outrageously noisy for this size of head.
The head cover looked funky and was very easy to get on and off - a rarity among these types of clubs. Ping are onto a winner here with a club that is excellent value for money.

Ping G2 Driver - Product Details
I just purchased a Ping G2 Driver. This is just a great driver. I was going to purchase Callaway Big Bertha Titanium 454. But a friend of mine recomended the Ping. I have been very happy and since then I have tried the Callaway 454, and that is nice club too, but I am much happier I got the Ping.
Compared this Ping G2 driver at the driving range with the Callaway 454 driver. The Ping G2 driver has a higher projectory and consistently straighter. Same distance wise, but the straighter drives convinced me to buy Ping G2.
When you put this Ping G2 driver behind the ball it doesn't look like a Ping. When you hit it you get a good penetrating flight which is what I look for. It sits very well and is also pleasing to the eye. The club is easy to shape and is forgiving on those not so sweet strikes. Not sure about the alignment aid but after a while it did not bother me. For the price and the performance the Ping G2 is definitely a driver to consider.
As a 24 handicapper, I needed something that was forgiving. I tested many brands and the Ping G2 was the chosen driver. First round out, I changed from scuffing drives, and missing fairways to smashing 17 out of 18 drives straight down the middle of the fairway!!
This club has changed my game, very forgiving, great feel and balance and the ball goes miles!! Very highly recommended. Buy one today!
I thought this was an excellent driver and I am not usually a Ping fan, but that has changed thanks to the Ping G2 driver. The ball went miles when I hit it and it sounds great and looks great too, apart from maybe the moon graphic on the top of the head. The guys I was playing with liked it though... You can hit it high and low and the NV shaft was very stable. Would have liked the shaft a bit shorter, but with Ping's custom fitting I am sure that is possible. For the money the Ping G2 must be hit before you splash the cash.
